    Post S8 beeped 3 times loudly, shut off and has blinking red LED, won't turn on

    Okay, well funny you say that because I was also messing around with the charging too. I specifically was setting it down and taking it off a QI charger from NeWisdom right as I set it down again, it did this. Maybe I did it more than a few times consecutively checking if I was getting fast...

    Thread S8 beeped 3 times loudly, shut off and has blinking red LED, won't turn on

    Well color me bummed! Have had the S8 for a few days, stock, only added 3 apps so far, sidesync, Clash of Clans and Lastpass. Anyway this morning, the phone was at 58% remaining battery, running fine. Then it beeped a weird tone 3 times, shut down and started blinking a red LED on the...

    Sort of. In the past, and currently on Android or on iphone via jailbreak, you can remotely control your phone through a PC. This gives a person the ability to continue to use the same mouse and keyboard as their desktop, answer calls and reply to texts, etc. I understand Continuum was never...

    Windows 6.5 had this function, simply connect via wifi or USB (through activesync) and have 100% control over the phone from your mouse and keyboard. It was great, perfect and enabled no need to ever pickup my phone through my work day. Continuum blows compared to this. Do you think we will...

    I have been running the 950 for about a week now. I was running Fast Ring Win 10 Mob on a 1020. Impressions compared to the 1020: Faster, fewer app crashes (although Messaging app still crashes on occasion), fewer wonky bugs like the keyboard not allowing typing when composing a text message...
